The St. Nicholas Hospital Athletic Health Center Sponsors Athletic Training Olympics
Sheboygan, Wis.The St. Nicholas Hospital Athletic Health Center sponsored the 4th Annual Athletic Training Olympics at South High School on Wednesday, March 17.
More than 40 students from North and South High School were invited to compete in seven different events related to athletic training and rehabilitation. The events consisted of:
- Toe Object Pick-Up: Athletes need to pick up a variety of items from the floor into a small container using only their feet. This is an ankle sprain rehabilitation exercise.
- ASO Ankle Brace Application: Athletes put on an ankle brace as quickly as they can while having the ankle brace still be effective.
- Dyna-Disk Balance Competition: Athletes balance on air-filled disk while catching balls from their partner. This is a tool used in ankle/knee rehabilitation and is also a great core exercise.
- Single Leg Triple Jump: Athletes jump on one foot three time as far as they can. This is used as one of the determining factors in return-to-play from serious knee injuries.
- Stool Scoot Team Race: Athletes partner up and race around cones while using one leg to propel a stool. This is a great exercise for hamstrings and quadriceps that is used in knee rehabilitation.
- Obstacle Course
- Relay Race
